Autumn Plein Air Painting in Madrid

The leaves on the trees are a light luminous green color in autumn. This light reaches out to infinity on the horizon. It’s pretty cold, but a coat, gloves, and hat will do the trick to be almost warm.

I like the benches on this path. You can’t see them because my body is blocking them, but that’s alright because you can see them in the watercolor below.

I have to laugh because I remember telling myself to paint the benches off to the side, not in the middle. I guess the benches wanted to be in the middle of the paper regardless.

Autumn Leaves in the Retiro Park

I think the element of surprise is what I like about art making.

Thank you for reading my little story,
